The Rush to Foreclosure: Wells Fargo Loses the Argument on Trial Modifications

Livinglies's Weblog

As Danielle Kelley, Esq. (Tallahassee) has repeatedly predicted, the trial modification practices of the big banks are getting them into hot water. Scenarios vary. But one typical scenario  is that the trial modification is “approved” (which under current law means that it has been through underwriting) and the borrower makes the trail payments. Then the bank says the “investor” (with whom they have most likely NOT been in contact) has denied the modification. After receiving the trial payments and assuring the borrowers that they were safe in their home, the bank then forecloses. Many homeowners, unaware that they in fact probably have a binding contract with the bank on the modification, walk away.

Kelley has won cases based upon the argument that the bank had no choice but to modify the loan according to the terms of the trial modifications — and to make any other adjustments necessary to make…

What Homeowners Must Know About Appealability and Reviewability of Court Orders and Judgments

This Post is to guide Homeowners in deciding whether to appeal their cases to the higher courts upon judgment or order.

The concepts of appealability and reviewability are constitutional limitations on the Court’s power to hear cases. More precisely, appealability rules act to limit the kinds of cases which may be heard by the Court of Appeals. Reviewability rules, on the other hand, limit the issues which the Court may determine once the case is before the Court. Article VI, § 3(b) of the State Constitution prescribes what kinds of orders are appealable to the Court, and article VI, § 3(a) states that in most cases “the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeals shall be limited to the review of questions of law.”

Sports Verdict: Which QB Will Win AFC Championship? Peyton Manning Vs. Tom Brady

CBS Philly

By Christian S. Kohl

As Championship Weekend looms this Sunday, football fans get to watch two exceptional games and two exceptional rivalries. In the AFC, Manning and Brady will duel yet again. The good news: either Manning or Brady will get to go to another Super Bowl. The bad news: one of them will not, and be denied adding more to his legacy yet again. The question is, who emerges on top?

This game could play out several different ways. What seems all but impossible is for New England to blow Denver out on their home field. The offense of Denver is so explosive, they are capable of making this game fiercely competitive at worst, and a blowout win for them at best. The Patriots simply lack the weapons on either side of the ball to roll all over Denver. If New England is…

Denver Auditor Happy About Changes In Medical Pot Monitoring

CBS Denver

DENVER (CBS4) – Denver’s auditor is pleased with changes made in monitoring medical marijuana businesses in the city.

Last year auditors found what they considered serious problems in the city’s monitoring of marijuana businesses. Now, in a follow up report, the auditor says more than 70 percent of its recommendations have been implemented.

The changes dealt with applications, control of cash handling, security of sensitive information and more.

“I am pleased to report that the Department of Excise and Licenses has taken our recommendations seriously and diligently worked to implement them,” Auditor Dennis Gallagher said in a statement. “I congratulate them and Mayor Hancock for this.”

The other recommendations are in the process of being implemented.

Denver’s Department of Excise and Licenses is also now responsible for regulating the new recreational marijuana businesses.
